    Re: Vikings Bye-Week Grades: Defense

    I don't get how the linebackers and secondary both get a B grade. It's pretty obvious that one is playing better than the other. At the very least, either the linebackers are a B+/A- or the secondary is a B-/C+ (thanks in large part to the weakest link. You know who you are).

    I think I'd go B+ LB and B- Secondary, but that's just me.

    I had read this article earlier and totally agree with it. The defense has been the best surprise this season. Tomlin had done a truly GREAT job.
    I diagree with the "Special Team" ratings. I would give them a D-. And even though it's not listed in the article, our offense overall get a D in my estimation.

    I disagree with the grades. Secondary should be c-
    Luckily Sharper and Winfield can tackle.

    Coaching, with just Tomlin should be b+

    Special teams D-
    Coverage stinks...our returns stink, and Kluwe Stinks

    Maybe that injury Kluwe had last year affected his play (or maybe he took it to easy in the off-season and/or lost his touch, who knows)
    WE CAN BUILD ON THIS!!!

    In AP I trust

    Actually, Kluwe is 4th best in the NFC in punts inside the 40 and that one 9 punt because of the wind in Buffalo is hurting his average more than anything.
    He is comming off an injury and adjusting to a new style with a bad special teams coach to help him a long the way.
    Kluwe is the man he's just had a bad week and a bad punt.
    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    Maybe you shouldn't judge a guy based on 2 or 3 games but perhaps a full season.
    To say Kluwe stinks after the year he had in '05 and all the factors working against him this year is stupid.
    Did you see the 50-yard-side-roll-out-inside-the-one punt he had against Detorit?
    The guy is awesome and everyone has a few down weeks so before you go off talking about how someone stinks maybe you make sure your rational for it doesn't stink.
